i have no idea why this sells you as a good candidate for a T10 law school.

tl;dr version:

I knew i was gay as early as age 8. I stayed in the closet until i was 16. It's wrong for society to cause gay people to hide. I want to be a lawyer to help move society in the right direction. So, NYU, you should accept me because you're a great law school and you're in the most important city in the world.

OP, i'm not a good critic, but that's how i read it. It doesn't sound convincing. The main thing i learned about you from this is that you're a gay person that opposes society's presumed limited acceptance of you. That's not a unique quality, if at all. I'd suggest you try to make it more interesting. Hopefully someone else can give you some better feedback.
